A Pt/Si/Ag heterostructure nanowire is created to integrate a metal-semiconductor Schottky diode with two separate metal catalysts to form a standalone photoelectric nanodevice for photocatalytic applications. Under light irradiation, the electron-hole pairs can be generated and quickly separated by the built-in potential and transport in two opposite directions towards the respective catalysts for redox reactions, enabling Pt/n-Si/Ag heterojunction nanowire photodiodes to function as highly efficient photocatalysts.
